BSF man’s video: IO starts probe, says will submit report within days

The Border Security Force has ordered an inquiry into the allegations of black-marketing of ration by its officers and supply of poor quality ration among its personnel serving on borders. The inquiry officer, mandated with probing the matter, said on Tuesday that has started the inquiry and will submit his report within days.  

Talking to media-persons in Rajouri, Deputy Inspector General of BSF (for Rajouri and  Poonch range), Brigadier MDS Maan said he has been appointed as the inquiry officer by the Director General BSF and has started the inquiry already.

“I have been asked to submit report at the earliest and have started the probe and will complete it within three to four days,” he said.

He that the BSF man Tej Bahadur Yadav—who is seen in a video about the allegations against BSF officers—has been called to Rajouri from his place of posting “to give his statement.”

“We will ensure that a fair probe into the matter,” he said.

When asked about Yadav’s statement that his life will be under risk after his videos went viral on social networking sites, the DIG said “every soldier, either good or bad in approach, is dearer to the force and loved.”  

He however said Yadav “doesn’t have a good track-record and was even court-martialled in 2010 for his bad approach which include intoxication and misbehavior with seniors.”

But he was later re-inducted into the force on compassionate grounds, Mann said. 

Yadav is posted in BSF’s 29 Battalion located in Mandir Mandi Poonch and posted in Saujiyan hills on Line of Control. He posted a series of videos on his Facebook account showing “poor quality ration” given to them amid heavy snowfall and also “how we are being maltreated.”

He sought the intervention of Prime Minister in the matter.
